Committee on Foreign Affairs - mars-4:hrs04IR2172_110119 - Rayburn 2172 - Assessing China's Behavior and its Impact on U.S. Interests - The briefing will be called to order. Welcome to my fellow members of the committee, our distinguished panel of witnesses, honored champions of the struggle for human rights in China, who are joining us today, ladies and gentlemen. There is an old saying that the Chinese invoke when they wish to avoid political discourse with the central powers in Beijing; the mountains are high and the Emperor is far way. Well, ladies and gentlemen, this morning there are no mountains to shield us. And China's newest Emperor has just landed in Washington and is at the front lawn of the White House; yet the pressing issues which separate our countries need to be urgently addressed. Three of those many issues, which will be the focus of today's briefing, include security concerns, human rights, and how our trade imbalance and the Chinese currency manipulation adversely impact our U.S. economy.
